What I’ve been up to, August 2013

Affiliated Brand

It’s official, summer is over :(  Summer is my absolute favorite time of the year so this news saddens me.  However, the weather has still be scorching hot here so it doesn’t really feel like it’s over.  My month has been good, super busy at times and super laid back at other times.  I guess that balances it all out.

Pink glitter manicure

I started off the month with this awesome pink manicure.  The glitter is Deborah Lippman Happy Birthday.  I’m super excited because Sephora is going to start carrying Lippmann (it’s already online!).


My friend Nikki and I always get season tickets to the Starlight Theater, this is our third year!  This was when we saw Footloose.  The show was eh, but we managed to make it a good time :)

Depoted makeup

Ugh, the dreaded depotting project.  I had been putting this off for way too long.  This took HOURS!  But I love that I’m using neglected products now, it definitley saves a ton of space! {tutorial here}

State Fair with grandpa

My grandpa and I also made our annual trip to the Missouri State Fair.  I think this is the 4th or 5th year?  It’s the silliest thing, we pretty much go do the same things every year.  Beer and corn dogs are always involved.  But for some reason we always have the best time ever.  We decided to have a caricature done this year and the guy made me look like an evil Asian witch…


I mean, right?  What’s up with my brows?  And I defintley wasn’t wearing blue eyeshadow that day.  JS.

August Favorites

Some of my August favorites!  I’ve had brush fever lately, experimenting with new shapes and types.  Makeup is my drug.

Disney Ariel Storylook Eyeshadow Palette

The hype behind this palette was (and still is) a little ridic, so ridic that I bought it when I caught sight of it at my Sephora.  I really didn’t want it until everyone else wanted it.  I know that’s stupid, but whatever.  I do what I want.


This was one of the sweetest brides I’ve ever met.  It was truly a joy being a part of her big day.

Smithville Lake

I got to go to the lake!  Back when I worked at a regular job with regular hours, I got to go almost every weekend.  I can’t complain about my new career but I will say I miss having Sundays off so I can enjoy this view.  Don’t worry, I wore plenty of SPF.

Marc Jacobs Beauty

It’s been a big month at Sephora, we launched MARC JACOBS BEAUTY!  I’m kind of obsessed with it (and no, I’m not just saying that because I work there). {review here}

Bridal parties

And this is how I finished my month.  Making bridal parties beautiful.
